The Nite Ize S-Biner Stainless Steel is an ultra-handy accessory constructed of high quality, weather-resistant stainless steel featuring dual spring gates that will hold, secure, and connect everything from house keys and cell phones to technical camping gear. Attach valuables to the center bar for ultimate security, link gate ends to a second set of items and anchor, or connect many items together. Smaller-sized S-Biners are excellent for connecting two zipper sliders on backpacks, duffels, and suitcases. Smaller sizes work great for hanging smaller items from a purse or backpack strap, attaching to individual keys, or hanging a plant from a ceiling hook. The larger sizes work great for bigger jobs like hanging a paint can from a ladder or a tool to your tool belt. But, the list goes on and on.

I used the cheaper one version from Walmart, but almost over night it was not releasing and holding properly. What a difference SS has on moisture, Kayking weekly with a hose down no wiping. How much is your time do you have to do it all?
I'am a Cobra Fish-N-Dive kayak fishing fanatic,as I fish almost everyday that I'am not working. I tried using the basic light weight aluminum cheap caribiner from Wal-Mart, even sprayed them down with silicone,yet they still rusted up in a short time, and eventurally fell apart. I buy all of my kayak supplies from Kate and the staff at ACK, and these stainless steel Nite Ize S-Bkiner's are the best quality connecting biners you can buy, let alone for the small $$ investment. They are super light weight, do not rust what so ever, and I know, because the back creeks here in ME Florida have the highest % of salt in any location in the states. I have one of the #5 Nite Ize on each side of my Cobra attached to the anchor trolley systems, plus I also have a third #5 also attached to my new Yak state out pole, I tie off secured to the bottom of the S biner, and then simply use the quick connect to the anchor trolley ring, once again, it's simply quality kayak equipment purchasing,IMO, from the very finest kayak supply company in the US, we some real descent stores here in Jacksonville, Florida, but, there is four main reasons why I continue to buy only from Austin Canoe & Kayak,(1)The ACK employee;s, they are the finest group of knowledgable outdoor equipment people you will ever come across, period. (2) "Customer Service",which simply goes hand in hand with #1. (3) Top quality vendors with top quality equipment.(4) Most important in the very end, especially in this time of economic crisis: "VALUE"! Price, that's right folks, I have purchased numerous NRS products that are not only top shelf products,but were sold to my by Kate,Kyle and the staff, at such $$ savings, it's a no brainer. I'am and always will be a ACK customer, there company logo stickers are all over my Cobra, I'am truly proud to tell my kayak and fishing friends about ACK,If you need any kind of caribiner, the Nite Ize are *****.
